Either way, [[BandwagonTechnique everyone is going to be complaining]] about it, and you wouldn't want to be left out of slagging off all those [[ViewersAreMorons idiots]] who gave up their money and time for such junk. Or the derision of [[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish stupidity with the passwords]] halfway and the [[TomatoInTheMirror predictability of the ending]]. So, of course, you need to buy it yourself. That'll show 'em!

* ''[[Series/{{CSI}} CSI]]'' Franchises are incredibly formulaic, so much of it, technologically and procedually wrong, plus you can spot the murderer (always murder) in the first 10-15 minutes: [[spoiler: There will be a background character who get 10 seconds of front of stage exposure, for no apparent reason. Did someone walk up to the lead (Horatio/Mac/Gill) and offer help for no apparent reason? Was a line said by an assistant to the chief suspect when they could have said it? Is someone pointed out for no reason - "I was fishing with Steve all day", cue Steve waving from the background? It's them]]

Removing statement about Barrack Obama due to it potentially being seen as a snide remark at him that while being a bit ironic on a page about snark bait, could end up
* Consider that ''every time'' someone puts the words "nobel peace price laureate" in front of the name UsefulNotes/BarackObama, it sounds like a snark.

The first half of the series already had some people who couldn't take stuff like the facial expressions, melodramatic death scenes and the MMORPG setting too seriously, among other things.
